A pkg unit is simple enough to hook up.
If you use tap screws to attach the supply and return plenums use short screws and be conscious of where they go.
The new Goodman needs a square to round plenum adapter sold separately.
You will also need;
nylon tie bands
1/4 inch tap screws
Is this going in a site built house or mobile home?

A package unit is nothing more than a big window unit that you hook ducts to. All you need to do is connect the return and supply ducts and connect the power and low voltage wires as others have said. Start by disconnecting the ducts on the back and yiuy will probablt figure it out. It can be difficult to find someone to do the installation for you if you aren't capable.
Now, as you've seen most A/C contractors don't typically like dealing with folks attempting to circumnavigate the supply chain. What happens when that guy spends several hours installing that unit only to find out that its DOA? He can't exactly load it back on the truck and go swap it out. The "savings" doesn't exist. Unless you're buying a discontinued or overstocked model there's no way you're going to get that unit cheaper than the contractor. The contractor has a set amount that he will charge for the installation (and his profit). When I'm approached with such a situation I will charge my usual fee and will install the unit without any labor warranty beyond installation workmanship.....and I make that very clear. In addition, if you have an issue down the road with your unit that you purchased elsewhere I will not bend over backwards with emergency service like I would had I sold you the unit in the first place. The funny thing is that tmost "bring your own unit" folks expect the same level of service after the sale. What sale?
Another word of warning......don't buy central A/C equipment online. Many local wholesale distributors will not provide warranty parts for units that didn't cross their dock. If I were buying a Goodman unit I would definately want first year labor and quick access to parts. Does anybody look at consumer ratings before they buy A/C equipment?
